    Hi Don,

    Very thanks for your answer. I am reading your given link .

    Well i have few more question sorry to bother you again but i didn't have any other options.

    1> Tomcat max POST size and can we increase it ?

    2> SOPA utility for web service ?

    3> GET and POST methods length Execution Size.

    3> I am using Crystal report for Enterprise 2016 Version 14.2.3.2132 Build 2016 SP3 but it gives lots of Conflicts it unable to store me the reports on Bo server. it throw error while i am saving report on BI environment/ BO Server (report created on Excel using Excel ODBC connection, Excel stored on server on C Drive) ,

    And many ODBC Driver manager errors(if i create report using IDT with same source Excel on Rich client it work fine i can refresh but on Browser it fails and throw ODBC Driver manger Connection not open error). Will i go to some other version or Enterprise is fine just i need to explore more on errors.

    Please Advise.

    Thanks
